We can make a difference in the education of your child with special needs

How We Can Help

We work individually with each family to understand their specific needs

What Our Clients Are Saying

If you don’t believe in miracles as soon as you retain Diane, you will! She gave my family hope when we lost all. We were in desperate need of educational support for our son whom went from an A-B student to failing within 1 year. We were in constant communication with the school and doing our part at home, yet there was no change. The school said we’ve exhausted all supports we qualified for, and expected us to take their word. We were unaware of all the legal requirements schools have to adhere to until we retained Diane. Diane was always professional in every meeting, yet stern and ALWAYS spoke with a purpose. The second we retained her we saw a change in our sons support he was receiving, which increased his academic achievements. We’re proud to say our son is graduating high school this year and that accomplishment is in part of her advocacy. If you’re at the point of exhaustion and feel like there is no hope, she will give that to you in your first initial visit. When you think of your children their education is the best investment you can provide for their future. Diane was the best investment we made!”

Good afternoon. I have attached [my son’s] recent success, over 500 points possible in math last 6 weeks and he scored 97%. Teacher said he has never seen anything like it in his class (nearly 20 years experience) and [my son] is helping other students in the class when he finishes his work. None of this wold be possible if Lidia and your staff had not helped us put all the correct safeguards in place in his IEP. Thank you!

“I want to thank you Diane. You have been a great support to our family! Your counsel has been a great help to me personally because advocating for [our son] alone has not been successful. I now feel like we are actually getting somewhere in the process. Before, I was like a deer caught in the headlights. Thank you again – you have been a godsend!”

Diane and her team advocated for our son to ensure that his school district met their responsibilities and provided financial support for his placement in a residential treatment center. Her diligence and firm demeanor ensured that the initially-recalcitrant District elected not to go to hearing and settled via mediation. Now our son is gettting the help he needs and we are no longer facing finanical crisis. Need help with a special needs kid? Hire her!

“Our son is doing FANTASTIC! You have made all of this possible. Your efforts helped get [our son]the team that he deserves and that values him rather than tries to change him and blame him for his challenges. Thank you for everything!!!”

“[Our child] is doing so much better in Middle School than she ever did in Elementary. That is a direct result of your efforts to get her the supports she needs. You have made a real difference to our family and we are grateful.”
